Another Two and a Half Men star is stirring up controversy. This time it’s the youngest of the title characters, Angus T. Jones, whose religious journey seems to have led him to the conclusion that his role in the show is bad news. In a recorded testimonial for Forerunner Christian Church, Jones talks about his path to religion and his discovery that Two and a Half Men is the work of “the enemy” and that viewers should “stop watching it and filling your head with filth.”

So far, there’s no comment on the video from anyone on the show, including Chuck Lorre, who has already been through the wringer with former star Charlie Sheen. While Sheen’s off-the-wall attacks came right at Lorre, Jones is instead assaulting the entire show and its premise, declaring that the show runs against his religious convictions. Check out his comments, starting at right around 7.5 minutes, in his video testimonial.

In the video, Jones seems to indicate that he doesn’t want to be a part of the show anymore in his comments about his role.
“If I’m doing more harm than good, or if I’m doing any harm, I don’t want to be here…You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that.”

If Jones feels so strongly about his role in the show, it seems that we should soon be hearing about his departure from the series. As THR points out, Two and a Half Men was just renewed for its tenth season, and the pay raise that gave the young actor $350,000 an episode was part of the deal for that new season. Is his newfound religion strong enough to make him pull out of a deal like that? I suspect we'll be hearing more about this in the near future.
